IN MY SUNDAY BEST: 2012.



This is probably one of the longest posts i've ever made but bear with me guys, this will also be one of more 'emotional' posts. This blog originally started as a little part of the internet to feature my illustrations and journal work, but it slowly but surely evolved as a place where I could share what i also loved, clothes. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the comments, follows, e-mails, tweets and tumblr messages this year.

It's been a long year. A very long year. So much has happened and so much has changed it's almost overwhelming. All in all I have grown so much as a woman. Truly becoming myself didn't happen overnight but it did, and i'm incredibly proud of myself for holding on, staying strong and i guess, just pushing forwards and striving for the best. I lost some friends, I made some more. I struggled with my course and pushed and pushed and my hardwork finally rewarded me. I made some serious fashion faux pa's (Especially during hand in week! LOL think bobbly leggings, ugg boots, and gross jumpers!) and I found what works for my body and style.

I hope you've all had a wonderful 2012 and I wish you all the very best in 2013 :) 

Lot's of love...

NEW IN | 212.



Hey Guys!

Hope everyone had an amazing Christmas! I did! 3 days later and we're still eating turkey sandwiches and turkey stir fry's! 

I did a wee bit of sales shopping the other day. To be honest everywhere was so packed, I just couldn't be bothered. The only place I went into fully prepared for battle was ZARA. Everything i wanted in ZARA was still uber expensive though so i'm waiting till the end of January to go back there.

I bought:

Stripey blouse from ZARA £20
Leather dress from ZARA £22.99
Tartan tassle loafers from River Island £15

CAMERA.

It's nearly Christmas! Whoo! It's been quite a while, and by quite a while I mean like a week or so! I'm back in London and it feels so great! I've missed the hustle and bustle of my city, i'm just not cut out for small town life I guess! Too much of a city girl!

I was asked a while back about what Camera I use and I'm so so sorry that i'm just posting this now! 

I use a Pentax Ist DS and I bought it from around £150 from a second hand camera shop in my uni town. I absolutely love my camera, it's almost like my child to be quite honest. I find the quality to be wonderful, the only downfall to it would be that it uses batteries rather than being rechargeable! 

I love the way my images come out, I can get crisp sharp photos of impeccable quality, or I can get the slightly grainy old looking images that i love so much. I know generally in the fashion blogger world the most expensive Canon's and Nikon's are considered holy grails but to be honest in my opinion it's all up to your skill as a photographer rather than how expensive your camera is. 

Hope this has helped! Any more questions hit me up on here or my twitter or my tumblr!

Young Cardinals.



Hey hey! I am feeling much better today, after drowning myself in Lemsip and staying mostly tucked in bed for the last couple of days. 
I had to run some errands today and meet a friend for a coffee so I threw on a simple outfit. I've been layering a helluva lot lately, the -1 degree weather we're having has definately pushed me towards wearing as many tights, tops and jumpers as humanly possible. I actually wish I'd thrown on a cream knit jumper on top of this because it was painfully cold leaving my house today! 

Anyway back to translating Italian texts for my essay on La Villa Barbaro. Eugh I can't wait for this term to end!  

Random, but I rekindled my 16 year old self the other night and I can't stop listening to Alexisonfire and A Day To Remember. Love it!

Hey guys, I've been absent from the blogging world for a while (6 days) but it feels like months! My Asthma has been playing up and I have the dreaded Flu! Ironic seeing as I had the flu jab about a month ago *le sigh*. I've been swimming in a disgusting sea of Lemsip (as pictured above) and my own green mucus (delightful init?) whilst writing up an essay on Palladian Architecture. 

In more positive news. I'M GOING BACK TO LANDAN! Whooooooo! As much as I erm... 'enjoy' being in the Midlands during term time, there is definately no place like home. Christmas doesn't really feel like Christmas until I'm back at home and watching terrible films with my sister, cooking with my mother and laughing at my dad's really bad Nigerian jokes! 

Anyway I hope everyone is well! As I haven't really left the house due to being stuck in bed, I have no clothes posts boo! But I promise there will be a few in the next couple of days!

P.S. Keep warm and un-sick everyone! I haven't forgotten about a camera post and please do leave your links as always!

It's officially Winter guys. I tend to ignore winter until the temperature gets to about -1 degrees celsius and then it's Dr Marten's, Chunky knits, and Faux Fur until spring for me.

I've had to do site analysis on Lincoln Arboretum, a gorgeous 22 acre park in Lincolnshire for a Sustainable Architectural design project which means traipsing through beautiful fallen leaves and taking endless photos of said leaves whilst freezing my socks off. I thought i'd share with you what I wore and a little photo I took of a part of my site.

P.S. Hope everyone is keeping warm! I'm in my cat onesie 80% of the time! =^.^=

Heavy Cross.


Nails of the week. Or should I say day... Sadly as gorgeous as this polish is, it's chips horribly. This half lovely half irritating polish if from Forever 21, i bought it on holiday in NY for $2.80 which is pretty cheap. 

Ring: Topshop

P.S The Camera post will be up on Wednesday ;)

The Warning.



Hola!

I am coming to you with the much coveted American Apparel "Disco Pant". Now, I bought mine in New York so they were a tad cheaper but my gosh these babies aren't cheap and unfortunately the dupes just weren't doing it for me. 

Were they worth it? Abso-bloody-lutely! They are so comfortable, stretchy and versatile. I wear them to uni, I wear them on nights out, I even wore them with a blazer for a more formal meeting.

Also anything high waisted gets an A+ from me as it fits my shape so well! ^.^ 



XOXO Sade


P.S. I've been getting a few questions about my camera and image quality? Would you like a post on what Camera I use etc? :) Let me know!

Bloodshake.



Hello!

Hey guys! Guess who managed to ~*finally*~ sort out her photo setup? This girl right here! *twirls gracefully* I'm so happy to finally have some sort of setup that allows me to take photos as my lovely photographer-in-the-making-sister isn't here to do that for me. 

I was having a bit of a kerfuffle about what to wear now that it's like minus a billion degrees in the Midlands. I'm a Spring/Summer girl through and through and I'm finding it hard to winterize my wardrobe again so the other day when my friend and I wanted to explore bookshops I just threw on my summer clothes... but with tights and Voila instant winter wear!

Cardigan: Primark
Dress: Primark
Belt: F21
Glasses: Urban Outfitters
Lipstick: Ruby Woo by MAC 


Post title is from this lush song by PEACE. It's been on repeat for a while for me as they remind me of FOALS and Friendly Fires (Two of my favourite bands). Hope you like!


XOXO Sade 


PS what have you been listening to? leave me youtube links! x

Misguided Ghost.


Hello! I've been such a ghost lately, I've been back at uni for about two weeks now and i've been so incredibly busy with new projects that i haven't really had time to do outfit/beauty posts. However do not fear for IN MY SUNDAY BEST is back! I've figured out how to take self shots from good angles with my timer so I'll be back with interesting Autumn/Winter posts very soon (By the end of this weekend!) 

PS. Congrats to the winner of my Giveaway Riley! I'll be posting your package very soon!

Girl, You're A Woman Now.



A few snippets from my 21st. I tried and failed to get a decent photo of the gorgeous dress I wore. I bought it from a wee boutique in SoHo when I was in New York. It's sheer with a long slit going up the left side and sits at the mid thigh. Uber sexy! 

I had a wonderful night with my family and friends and I'm very appreciative of all the love and support I get from them.

PS. Thanks for all the birthday wishes beautifuls! <3
